  1. Anyone else out there have any suggestions? Still open to anything.
  2. I like the look of both of these. Price is up in the air really, when I talk to the others I'll definitely suggest these two. Thanks for the suggestions!
  3. Yes, I suppose. It probably would be wise to avoid it so the lady in charge of our tech department doesn't throw too much of a fit about a used machine hooking up to their most open school network.
  4. Hey all, It's my senior year at my highschool and I was thinking about a senior gift to go to our choir director. I am considering suggesting we get him a laptop. Right now he using a junky old HP machine running an AMD Athlon II P340 at 2.20 Ghz and 2 GB of RAM. Its SOOOO slow, taking up to 45 seconds to catch up after doing something as simple as pressing the Windows key. We've reloaded it before, and its checked for viruses. Its just old, ready to be thrown out. I'm not sure what exactly to get him, we're highschool students preparing for college so our pockets arent too deep. I was hoping to find something in the $300- $400 price range. Cheaper is better! However, I don't know what exactly to get. Hes a choir director, so most of his activities include surfing the web, streaming videos and music, document creating, editing, and sharing. And he uses a program called Freestyle to transpose and compose music. I don't think that it'll take much to run anything like that... Also: Windows machines only please - our school supplies Chromebooks to all their employees but he prefers using his Windows machine even with its horrific slowness. Hope to get lots of suggestions, thanks guys! - Drak
  5. I do use MSI Afterburner, and I've tried doing that before and the fan still doesn't spin without me going down and spinning it.
  6. Hey guys, So around Black Friday/Cyber Monday time I bought a Sapphire R9 390x Tri-x graphics card from Newegg. The card runs great, for the most part. About a month (maybe two? I don't even remember anymore) ago, I've started having this issue where sometimes if my computer has been off for more than 4-6 hours, sometimes when I boot it up the third fan closest to the IO plate just doesn't spin, but twitches a bit. As if it's trying to spin, but is being blocked by something. And if I physically go down and spin it myself, then it spins fine til I shut my computer off again. Then sometimes the fan spins perfectly fine. I've tried cleaning out any and all dust built up in the cooler and fans, I've made sure that its getting enough power, and I've even checked my BIOS options for my card. I'm completely at a loss on what to do at this point and I'm starting to look toward either trying to RMA this card, or just get a completely new and different card. Anyways, Thanks as always, Drak
  7. Green like the best color of eyes B) Good luck everyone, and thanks DaltonM!
  8. I use Norton and I love it. With a plan that covers all of my devices, it does what it needs to do.
  9. Something like the Azio MGK1 RGB keyboard may suit you well, however I have sometimes seen Corsair's K70 RGB Keyboard go for around 100 dollars out there on the internet, so I'd definitely look into that. It doesn't get much better than a K70 imo
  10. Yeah literally the whole Skylake bending thing is no big deal... It's people being sloppy with their coolers. You can play it safe though, if you're worried of doing that, and get a different kind of cooler than the ones related to the reports.
  11. What model of 390x are you using?
  12. It doesn't sound like a bad graphics card to me... more like a messed up TV. Try plugging in the TV into something else and using it, see if the lines reappear. If not, you can try connecting the TV in a different way.
  13. Your options aren't very wide with the big ol' CHEAP sign hanging over your head... http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00W95RR32/?tag=pcpapi-20 Here, this LG monitor is 24" 1080p at 60hz 2ms response time. It comes in at about 135 bucks.
  14. Wouldn't happen to have any idea on how I'd watch the temps of my router, would ya?
  15. I recommend something like MSI Afterburner to watch your gpu in depth.. but if you're looking for something rather simplistic, the NZXT CAM software is a great tool and I use it pretty much 24/7. Another fantastic program is CPUID's HWMonitor - that'll tell you everything you'd ever need to know thats going on inside your computer temp and performance wise... Good luck man, hope the new rig suits you well.
